While not as powerful as other traditional laptops, Chromebooks are becoming extremely popular among consumers mainly due to their affordability. Companies like Asus and Acer have already announced two different laptops targeted towards students last month and now, HP is offering its own convertible Chromebook targeted towards Education market.
Earlier today, Google unveiled the new HP Chromebook X260 11 G1 edition. The device is a notebook comes with a 360-degree hinge, a touchscreen display and optional stylus support.
While detailed specifications aren’t out yet, it should feature specifications common to other Chromebooks such as camera, a USB Type-C charging port, and support for Android apps. This Notebook is similar to the discontinued Stream X360 that featured an 11.6 inch touchscreen display with entry-level specifications. However, it featured windows rather than Chrome OS. If the upcoming notebook features similar hardware, then Chrome theoretically should give better experience than the Stream X360 thanks to Chrome’s low resource requirements.
